More art house than porn
1 July 2002 | by (St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador , Canada) – See all my reviews

Being the first Bruce La Bruce movie I have ever seen, I was quite intrigued to see "Super 8 & 1/2." The movie is overlong, but does have some very amusing bits mixed in with the graphic sex and general weirdness. Bruce is the big star of the movie, but the Wednesday characters are also quite fun, and the cameos by Scott Thompson, Richard Kern, and Vaginal Cream Davis are fun. A must see for anyone familiar with Bruce's writing in Exclaim magazine (though it helps to be open-minded too).
